Been finding a fair  amount of fish for this time of year and prime Spring Striper Fishing  is just around the corner. Delta Stripers will continue to ramp up as we  get into Spring; late March, April & May are prime Striper months  & I am excited to start the season strong. I still have some prime  Striper dates available in April & May, remaining dates won’t last  long so book your adventure soon or get out there & enjoy the  amazing California Delta!"

Lower Sac Report by Brian Kohlman

The weather was beautiful – and the fishing was even better for my guests Barbara and Don. The grab started slow but picked up by mid-late morning and remained solid throughout the afternoon. Barbara and Don both hooked some really nice fish on caddis and mayfly nymphs. The Sac is fishing really well, and it will continue to improve. Now is the time to book your spring fishing trip!

Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

I spent two days on the lower Sacramento River with some guests I've had the pleasure of guiding before -- Michael and Tommy and their wives as well as another couple brand new to fly fishing. This group of husband / wife teams meant we had multiple boats, so Brian Kohlman and Kevin Kay joined me. On the first day the bite was pretty steady from 10:30am on until the end of the day. We caught a few smaller fish before Diana put a quality fish in the net that we had to admire and take a picture of. The play by play was that I told her to cast behind a tree that was hanging over the water and she executed it perfectly and hooked up almost immediately with a nice 'bow that was hungry for a rubber leg. Michael informed me that his wife is always much luckier than he is and that proved to be true as she had a LOT of grabs throughout the day. Of course hooking fish is one thing... landing them is another thing altogether! And don't get me started on setting the hook! But all in all, the day was fun. It's always a pleasure being with Michael and we are starting to have some really great memories from our previous trips. He was a bit surprsed that I remembered some of the previuos fish he's caught but it's hard to forget days when everything goes right! On the second day I was with Tommy and his wife Diane and we also had a really good time, despite the fishing being mostly slow. There was little to no bite for a lot of the day. We changed flies a lot and kept at it throughout the day, but the wind was off and on and there were many periods of perfectly placed bobbers floating down the river with no drag -- exactly what we want -- and no take downs! Argh! So frustrating! But we stayed focused and kept fishing hard and managed to put a handful of nice quality fish in the net. Can't complain about that! Sometimes it's not all about the quantity of the fish you catch and you have to just be grateful for the quality of the fish you get to appreciate.
